Fred Thompson Endorses McCain -- Again

'This is no longer about past preferences or differences. It is about what is best for our country and for me that means that Republican[s] should close ranks behind John McCain.'

-- Fred Thompson, February 8, 2008

That endorsement is not at all surprising. You see, Fred Thompson already endorsed McCain for president:

'When it comes to personal courage and integrity and the courage to do what he thinks is right, regardless of whether or not it's particularly popular at the moment, John McCain has shown characteristics of leadership like no one else I've ever seen.'

-- Fred Thompson, August 18, 1999

bill-tb:

McCain has the endorsements, now all he needs is voters, which won't be showing up.

Forget the part about the military and McCain being able to stop the stupid liberals from withdrawal, cuts or giving uo on the WOT, once congress fills up with dims, that will be over.

Unless conservatives focus on the House and Senate, it's looking bad for America. Heck we might even have anew ice age soon.

You see, Jayson, back around year 2000, Republicans weren't interested in personal courage and integrity -- that's why they chose the lying chickenhawk Bush over McCain.

With time, people usually see the error of their ways.

It's only February. People will get over thier pouting and do what they have to in order to keep Hillary out of office.

And bill-tb you're right, even if you're not voting for the party nominee, at least go vote for Republican representatives in the House and Senate to keep the Democrats out of the majority.

Courage comes in many different form. Not cutting and running in the face of political demonization is one example. A test Hillary failed and Obama by luck dodged.

Skip:

This isn't surprising, but I am glad that he waited until it was basically decided to do so. And I have no doubt that he would have eventually endorsed whoever the nominee was going to be.

Pouting? You don't think that some of us just cannot stand McCain? Kerry relied on the Anti-Bush vote. Now McCain is going to rely on the Anti-Hillary vote. Why not try for some actual leadership and get elected on your own merits instead of the other persons lack of merits. This presidential race disgusts me. There is no choice for a reasonable person to make.

And what if Obama gets the dem nomination? McCain insiders have already said they will not run a negative ad against obama. McCain will get smoked by obama if that's the case. Either way there is no enthusiasm for McCain and there is tons of enthusiasm for the democrat candidates. As sad as that is for me to say.

Relying on an "Anti-" vote is not a good way to try and win an election and thats exactly what McCain's strategy is.

Brad:

Dave W. -

From one point your right, the Dems have a tremendous amount of interest in their primaries that doesn't bode well for any Republican nominee.

In terms of "no one to vote for..." it's a democracy and the Republican party has voted. (or still is actually). Once its done, you can vote McCain (probably), or Hillary/Obama,
or don't vote and let others decide for you.

That's democracy...

Yes, I'm glad folks are starting to realize ol' Fred wasn't quite the conservative you were creating in your minds. The only thing he accomplished in his listless run was to benefit the most liberal candidate in the Republican field.

McCain does not do what's right and he does exactly what is popular -- popular with the left, and they've loved him for it. That's why he does it. Simple as that.

Fred ..."John McCain has shown characteristics of leadership like no one else I've ever seen."

Love America, Immigrant:

Again,
We should congratulate the liberals for choosing their candidates well to represent their agenda/convictions: Clintonian ethics, "killing babies, not terrorists" big gov, and a good con-job. Obama hopefully will raise an army of chicken dove liberals like Herman to cross the Red Sea to be the human shields for the Israeli women/children (if they don't accidentally make it easier for the terrorists to blow them up). Then they will take their saving message to Iraq and across the Middle East. With the blessing of their Savior Obama, Herman with his superior spinning skill will convince AlQuaeda not to cook children anymore, and not to trick retarded women and children to be bombers. Instead Herman will offer himself to be the homocide bomber to save these women/children. It is the hope and change that Herman will bring to the Middle East.
